MILLION WOMEN’S MARCH
WOMEN STAND IN SOLIDARITY ACROSS THE GLOBE TO BRING AWARENESS ON GENDER RELATIONS….
Women and womens’s rights in the United States have come such a long way since the Women’s suffrage movement of 1848 led by Susan B. Anthony. Yet, today, there are still many inequalities amongst gender relations, that plague women- with the biggest most forward public display of inequality in the form of objectification being displayed during the U.S. 2016 presidential election, by America’s favorite most loved-hated man- Donald J. Trump.

In a campaign to gain the executive seat- Donald J. Trump versus Hillary Clinton seemed like an unfair match. Trump had neither a military nor political background while Clinton held solid qualifications; serving as First Lady, New York Senator, and Secretary of State in her political career. With so much political experience, anyone in their right mind would deem Hillary as the perfect candidate to serve as President of the U.S.
Unfortunately, the world didn’t see it that way. As Trump carried the election gaining a majority of the electoral votes making him the 45th President of the United States of America despite all of his sexism and bigotry. Most people were stumped by Trump’s win, not only because he lacked the credentials for such a challenging position but Trump has a history of displaying a lack of respect for women. With his most recent and infamous statement going public:
DONALD J TRUMPS SAYS….GRAB HER BY THE P*$$Y
It’s unimaginable that a man in hopes to achieve such a distinguished position as President of the United States of America would even be so boldly supported by Americans. There’s this saying- action speaks louder than words. With so many votes garnered by Trump it takes the guessing game out. The people have spoken and if America found it fit to knowingly have a sexist and demoralizing man to serve as president then there is truly a problem- within American culture.
THE P*$$IES UNITE
This weekend was BIG for women around the globe in support of women’s rights bringing attention to -the disappointing success of Trump’s victory as President and spreading awareness on civil liberties world’s respect for women. It goes without saying the- wellbeing of women dictates the wellbeing of the world. As we all come from the womb of a woman- there ought to be a very conscious reverance held for women. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Women are widely objectified and misused and the masses have recently come together to bring light to the disparities suffered by women with the Million Women’s March.
It’s been reported an estimated 2.9 women across the world came out in total, in support of the Million Women’s March. The epic march brought out droves of women to Washington D.C. to stand-up against civil inequalities, women’s rights, sexism, racism, slut-shaming and across the nation/around the globe, mini-marches and demonstrations were held to stand in solidarity. Celebrities in attendance included Scarlett Johansson, America Ferrera, Madonna, and Zoe Kravit amongst others.
